Tony Perkins Has The Eric Holder Sadz

“Holder’s comments are an insult to his office and the office of 50 other men and women who took similar oaths. If the Attorney General can pick and choose which laws to uphold, then can the rest of us pick and choose which laws to follow? Can we pick and choose which taxes we’ll pay? If the Left follows this ...

AFA: Impeach Eric Holder

“United States Attorney General Eric Holder, this week, has again overstepped the boundaries of the law when he arbitrarily ordered that homosexual couples will now receive government benefits reserved only for natural marriage status.

27 GOP House Reps Co-Sponsor Randy Weber’s Bill To Ban Federal Recognition Of Out-Of-State Same-Sex Marriages

Yesterday House Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) introduced a laughably doomed bill that would limit the federal government to only recognizing same-sex marriages that are legally conducted in the state where the married couple resides. Since the bill’s introduction, 27 GOP members of the House have signed on as co-sponsors. The list so far is a cavalcade of crackpottery: Michele Bachmann, ...

Brian Brown Has The DOJ Sadz

“It is outrageous that the Justice Department would move so brazenly and publicly to undermine Utah’s standing constitutional provision regulating marriage as the union of one man and one woman. It is the right of states to determine marriage, and the voters and legislature of Utah have done just that. Their right to do so is encoded in the U.S. ...

Napolitano: Come Get Your Green Cards

“I applaud the Supreme Court decision in United States v. Windsor holding that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. This discriminatory law denied thousands of legally married same-sex couples many important federal benefits, including immigration benefits. I am pleased the Court agreed with the Administration’s position that DOMA’s restrictions violate the Constitution. Working with our federal partners, including ...

Today’s Liberty Counsel Lie

Tony Perkins Lies About DOJ Pride

“In a chilling memo to DOJ staff, the Obama administration is warning managers that they’d better start embracing homosexuality–or else. In a not-so-veiled threat, the administration tells staff that when it comes to homosexuality and cross-dressing, ‘Silence will be interpreted as disapproval.’ That’s absolutely outrageous. Even criminals have the right to remain silent! President Obama’s so-called Department of Justice is ...

Quote Of The Day – Matt Barber

  “Our sources have provided Liberty Counsel an internal DOJ document titled: ‘LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers.’ It was emailed to DOJ managers in advance of the left’s so-called ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month.’ The document is chilling. It’s riddled with directives that grossly violate – prima facie –employees’ First Amendment ...
